Keno was created in two hundred before Christ by the Chinese military leader, Cheung Leung who used this game as a finance resource for his failing forces. The city of Cheung was waging a battle, and after a bit of time appeared to be looking at a country wide shortage of food with the drastic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung had to come up with a quick fix for the financial disaster and to create income for his forces. He therefore designed the game we now know as keno and it was a fantastic success.

Keno used to be well-known as the White Pigeon Game, due to the fact that the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from larger locations to the tinier towns. The lotto ‘Keno’ was brought to the US in the 1800s by Chinese migrants who headed to the US for work. In those times, Keno was played with 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is normally enjoyed with eighty numbers in most of the US land based casinos as well as online casinos. Keno is largely loved today as a consequence of the laid back nature of betting the game and the basic reality that there are little skills required to play Keno. Despite the reality that the chances of succeeding are appalling, there is constantly the hope that you might hit quite large with little gambling investment.

Keno is enjoyed with 80 numbers with 20 numbers picked each game. Gamblers of Keno can choose from 2 to ten numbers and bet on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The payout of Keno is dependent on the wagers made and the roll out of matching numbers.

Keno grew in acceptance in the United States near the close of the 1800’s when the Chinese letters were changed with , US numbers. Lotteries weren’t covered under the laws of wagering in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos changed the name of the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the idea that the numbers are horses and you are looking for your horses to place. When a law passed that levied a tax on off track wagering, Nevada casinos quickly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
